The Marquette University Center for Peacemaking empowers the university and the wider community to explore together the necessary skills to become informed, spiritually-centered, nonviolent peacemakers. Rooted in the Ignatian charism, the center fosters an awakening to the holistic relationship of scholarship, spirituality, nonviolent living, and the active struggle for peace and justice.
Three of the summer '14 fellows (Mary Klauer, Emily Landes, and Gillian Hallissey) will present on their projects.
Information on summer '15 fellowships will be available at the presentation.
